Public Rec Apparel Has Your New Favorite Sweats

Zach Goldstein’s search for the perfect sweatpant took long enough that he decided to craft a solution himself. Frustrated with the fit and look of traditional sweatpants, Goldstein was forever looking for a slimmer pair of tapered sweats. Eventually, that led to the formation of Public Rec Apparel, where Goldstein & his team worked for well over a year on a prototypes of a product that eventually raised nearly $180,000 on Kickstarter — the All Day Every Day Pant.

Available in three colors (Heather Navy, Heather Charcoal and Black), the All Day Every Day Pant takes a style that’s traditionally been unflattering, and updates it for the guy on the go. In a mobile world, that’s noteworthy.

“We set out to make a better-fitting pair of sweatpants by using waist and inseam sizing,” Goldstein said via email. The brand also uses a blend of nylon and spandex for comfort and a more formal look. All things considered, it’s a style move that’s drawn attention across the menswear community as “more comfortable alternative to jeans,” according to the brand.

Hitting the sweet spot between comfort and style is a goal that can be quite tricky for most guys, but the brand aims to solve that conundrum — the All Day Every Day Pant can certainly work in an athletic setting, but it’s geared simply toward leisure activities.

With the lines blurring between casual and formal, it’s a product that makes sense in today’s marketplace. And the brand isn’t stopping at sweatpants — they plan to introduce three more styles for the fall and winter season. For those who want new product sooner, they’ll also be releasing a T-shirt this summer.

The tapered bottom keeps the silhouette clean, while the colors are muted enough that they should work with other like-minded style staples — like a slim pocket tee or even a blue Oxford and a grey crewneck sweater. For those wary of taking the leap into a style that’s not denim or chinos, Goldstein suggests reaching for a sharp bomber jacket.

If Public Rec Apparel keeps getting positive feedback, plenty more might soon be wearing the All Day Every Day Pant — and other gear the company plans on churning out.
